Title supplied by cataloger

May discusses the speeches of George Thompson, William Henry Seward, and Frederick Douglass. He says that the Boston anti-slavery office does not have a complete file of the "National Anti-Slavery Standard." May states that he is sending some books to be distributed in various places throughout the United Kingdom, the idea being to develop anti-slavery libraries within the region. May provides a tentative list of potential cities in which collections should be developed, but leaves the final decision to Webb. He briefly discusses the hardship of having his son living in China before informing Webb that William Lloyd Garrison plans to take a final trip to England. May says that he expects the Democrats to nominate Stephen Arnold Douglas as their presidential candidate. May concludes his correspondence by emphasizing his efforts to try to curb Henry Clarke Wright's tendency of making anti-religious statements
